Stephen de Filippo is a composer from the South West region of Western Australia. Working in both acoustic and electronic-acoustic domains, Stephen's compositions centre on experimental performance practice, considerations on place, and often, a notational style that utilises time durations as an alternative to conventional metre. In addition to composition, Stephen performs with a megaphone - projecting liminal sounds, and is also undertaking a research project that considers the development of Australian musical nationalism as a response to the concept of cultural cringe. Stephen is currently a doctoral candidate at the University of California, San Diego, and has recently relocated to Boston to undertake a year-long fellowship at Harvard University's Department of Music.

Stephen de Filippo — current to February 2023
